BC-1979 Biggar $3000

Don't see these to often. Priced low too. Wonder what condition it's in.

Rare Collectors 1979 All Fibreglass Trailer For Sale - $3000 (Surrey)

"Rare Collectors 1979 All Fibreglass Trailer For Sale - $3000 (Surrey)

Looking for a collector Trailer:
These were well Built Trailers
This unit has Tandem axel (torsion bar) suspension, forced air furnace, 4 burner stove w/oven, 3 way fridge, (Shower/Toilet Combo), hot water tank fridge, stove, & oven, furnace, Single battery, dual propane tanks, sleeps 4, The trailers were made around the late 70's early 80's.

Note: I have had the Complete Trailer Brake system Up Graded:
All New Electric Bakes at all 4 wheels...Backing Plates, Electric Brake Magnets & Shoes including renewing each Axle bearing, this past fall 2012.
John Biggar was a Boler employee that left the company to design and produce his own improved travel trailer. At Biggar Manufacturing Ltd., 401 Chrisland St, Winnipeg, Manitoba, His designs were unparalleled with a unique "double fibreglass shell" that completely encased and insulated the unit. He passed away shortly after he started production, making very few of these trailers with a similar layout to the side gaucho style of the Bigfoot 19' trailers of that era. Any fibreglass enthusiast would appreciate the quality and uniqueness of this trailer. The dry weight is 3340 lbs.

$3000.00 OBO"

Sweet!
And double-hull, too...

That would be a good buy for someone with a big enough tow vehicle- I'm guessing it'll go well over 4,000 pounds fully loaded. But what a great four-season camper it must be!

I have never seen one, but I like Biggars. There was one in Calgary for $2500 that I should have gone and taken a look at.
CANADA - 1978 - Bigger 19ft - $2500
They seem to be a really good deal. If only they had jalousie windows.

We have a few members here who own them and normally have at least one at most of our meets in BC. Francesca your correct they are on the heavy side! Lots of wood inside! Inside they look a bit like an older Bigfoot with the table up front and the side bed that pulls out - some also have the overhead bunk above that pulls down, bathroom in the back rear corner.

I had the pleasure of peeking inside of MarinaB's Biggar at the Nor-West Glass Eggs in Mission BC last year. The wood work and other details were on the intricate/fancy side. Very classy trailer. Not to mention that Marina had it galmped out. (I just told my Mac to learn "glamped" in spell check )
All the wood drives my interest as to the interior condition of this one. Could be a mess. Mess or not, the price is right. Could be a steel if it's good.

We got it this morning! Here are a few pictures. We have quite a bit of work to do to make it our own. Interior is original, the bunk bed is intact. We won't have use for it but it sure is neat to have.
